writer in the clinton white house. how are you? >> i'm good, toure. how are you? >> they're three traditional disadvantages every incumbent will face in the debate context. number one, standing on stage alongside the president is ennobling for the challenger. it's hard to do debate prep because of their job. number three, they lived for years in this bubble where everyone's differential and nobody is challenging them. they're like a king. they're standing in front of millions of people and someone saying you're not doing your job ri right. am i missing anything? >> the one about the bubble in particular is a serious thing. you're president of the united states almost four years. you get into discussions and debate about policy. your staff may disagree, but there's an element of deference. you're a commander in chief. suddenly the job of the debate is to break that all down and take it apart and get them to become again someone who does it. the real trick in debates is to get under your opponent's skin. you get them to crack, that demonstrates the lack of confidence people like to
't cause autism. hillary clinton said the same thing and so did john mccain. all three made the connection between thimerosol with a trace of mercury in it. that's been debunked. >> again, you're talking about dabbling in some theories, and completely grant you that it's troubling when you talk about people on the left that pushed this idea of a vaccine/autism link. that's troubling and needs to be called out. when you talk about as a party, mitt romney's in his acceptance speech at republican convention mocked the idea of combating climate change. he talked about obama promising to slow the rise of the oceans and heal the planet. he mocked it, and it was a huge applause line. you have a republican party platform using scare quotes to talk about climate change. you have republicans in major positions of influence in the congress saying it's a complete hoax. that's totally out of whack with the kind of hostility of science you see overall on the left. >> so my response to that would be that, see, you're focusing more on the republican party and the democratic party, and that's not the point
. if they don't, then fine. that's what it is. he doesn't need to win like clinton and obama needed to win to validate themselves. >> all right. and now one of the classic awkward segues, talking about bacon. it's getting tougher and more expensive. we are talking about actual bacon here. not the figurative stuff we talk about in politics. u.s. has a looming pork shortage thanks to this summer's drought driving up the cost of feed to hogs and cut the number of pigs that farmers raise. next year, a 12% drop in pounds of bacon per american and the cost could rise by more than a dollar a pound and not stopping red blooded americans. >> i would pay double that for bacon. >> enjoy it when you can and the sausage and the pork chops. enjoy, you know, everything from the little piggy. >> price don't matter at my age. i'm 82 years old. i can have what i want. >> this is the michele obama nanny state plug. >> sure. someone is responsible for this. some democrat. i have already started to stockpile my bacon because life without bacon is not worth living. it's become part of my cultural existence. i t
bill clinton got elected, but they have to have a reason. they have to have a reason. >> isn't obama's record a good reason? should not mitt romney be talking more about that record? >> he should, but he also has to couple that with why he would be different. what would he do? on the issue of debt that you just talked about, on the issue of debt, romney we saw softened his position on how big a tax cut he could give under the romney/ryan budget because they added up the numbers. you can't give a $5 trillion tax cut and do anything meaningful about the debt. as bill clinton said, they finally did the math. his original plan would have blown it up more than anything president obama could do. so you can't just attack. you have to say, this is what my opponent has done wrong. this is how i'll change it. and he has done a fair job. he could do a better job on what my opponent has done wrong, but he has to come up with this is how i'll change it. it's important. >> thanks so much. >> help me out with that cliche. send me an e mal-mail. all right. >> all right. so our favorite republican mi
reloses his cool in a way is inadvertent, did it to hillary clinton, well you're likable enough, hillary. you have to be ready for that if you are caught glancing the wrong way, let alone saying the way al gore s. >> don't look at your watch. >> remember that. it could hurt you. it could hurt you. but he has got a much easier job, i think. the president has to defend his record in a positive way and those keep his cool. >> howard fineman, stopping by the kids' table here in denver. thanks for being part of the day. >> if you hear me singing at the end, ♪ turn out the lights, the party's over ♪ >> we will see you soon. finish that song. >>> up next, both sides dusting off old tapes hours before the first big debate, nothing coordinated about that, right? we will dig into the ridiculousness as "the cycle" "rolls on from denver on wednesday, october 3, 2012. [ male announcer ] wouldn't it be cool if we took the nissan altima and reimagined nearly everything in it? gave it greater horsepower and best in class 38 mpg highway... advanced headlights... and zero gravity seats? yeah, that wou
reaction. sets up not like when they lost to clinton in '96, good economy, you're going to lose this election. if they lose this year, the reaction on the right we're seeing, mitt romney blew the election that should not have been losable for the republican nominee. that's a faulty conclusion. >> i think that's absolutely right and will be the conclusion that we could have won, we should have won and we ran a horrible campaign. all right. straight ahead, the new hollywood film on america's schools, that teachers are giving an "f." [ mother ] you can't leave the table till you finish your vegetables. [ clock ticking ] [ male announcer ] there's a better way... v8 v-fusion. vegetable nutrition they need, fruit taste they love. could've had a v8... what are you doing? uh. who taught you how to do this stuff? you! all right! i learned it by watching you! [ male announcer ] parents who skim, have kids who skim. kraft macaroni & cheese. you know you love it. >>> a lot of these kids can barely add and we want to be teaching them geometry. >> the problem is that no one expects them to d
